Family Beach Picture

While we were at the beach we had to spend an evening walking on the sand and finding a spot to capture that perfect family picture. Well - after about 50 shots, wrangling in 4 kids and a baby, all the adults, the sun setting at a very awkward angle... it wasn't quite as "picture perfect" as I had envisioned....

Right down the beach from us, we'd be checking out this huge piece of driftwood that had washed ashore. Let's be honest - it was a huge tree on the beach. And the perfect spot to frolic and capture those Kodak moments.

The kids liked the adventure....
Megan (3), Anna (6), Justin (9), and Daniel (11)

And we did actually get Nicole in one shot. Ok - so she was hysterically crying because (1) mommy put her down, and (2) she was way to close to the water and actually touching the sand.... but hey, we were there - it had to be done!

In no uncertain terms she let me know that she was over of all this photo shoot stuff!
And she was tired!But once she realized Mommy would hold her and she could hold onto my hair, she was good to go.We managed to get one family shot.And did get a photo of Grandma and Granddad with their 5 awesome grand kids!

As Megan would say,
"so long beach, see ya next year!"
